This week's video feature is GVA Trofee - Ronse, a thriller of a Cross duel that came down to Kevin Pauwels (Bel) Sunweb-Revor & Zdenek Stybar (Cze) Quickstep Cycling Team battling it out for the win.
Pauwels prevails by taking the initiative when it mattered most.
The course was quite the bombing race route with big hills,
two steep run ups- one that only
Bart Aernouts (Bel) Rabo - Giant Offroad Team
was able to ride once- see video,
and some amazing downhill sections that required
serious bike handling at speeds.
This video makes for great viewing, just give yourself 1 hour to enjoy all the action as it goes down real time...
Check out the huge crowds lining the course. The Belgium fans never disappoint in supporting the worlds fastest Cyclocross racers. They really respect and admire the fantastically talented riders on course. The dedicated fans show respect to the riders and do not try and interfere with the action, for the most part. After all, the real professionals of Cyclocross will not tolerate fans acting a fool. Just ask Bart Wellens or Richard Groendahl. Both of those riders have had issues with fan interference and fans acting wrong toward riders and they simply took matters into their own hands...
